Too early to call Cook County State's Attorney Democratic primary.

CHICAGO As of Sunday evening, it is still too early to call the Democratic primary election for Cook County State's Attorney. This is because Clayton Harris III has narrowed the lead of Eileen O'Neill Burke to just more than 2,000 votes out of a total of 516,875 ballots that have been tabulated. This is a margin of 0.39 percentage points.

Over the course of the last few days of updates, Harris has made tremendous progress toward closing the deficit. At the beginning of this week, it is anticipated that further ballots will be tabulated in the suburbs of Cook County.

 There is still a possibility that additional ballots that were postmarked by Election Day will arrive and be counted until April 2.

Attorney Harris is a member of the party's support system. The appellate judge O'Neill Burke has served in the past. O'Neill Burke was the most successful in terms of funding, with some of his funds coming from prominent Republican donors. However, Harris received a large number of endorsements, including those from labor unions, progressive Democrats, and mainstream Democrats.

The incumbent State's Attorney Kim Foxx has decided not to run for a third term, which means that the race is now open. During the primary election that took place in Illinois on Tuesday, it was one of the most heated and contested contests.

The candidate who emerges victorious in the primary election in the Democratic stronghold is anticipated to win the election in November. There are also candidates running for the position of libertarian Andrew Charles Kopinski and Republican Alderman Bob Fioretti.

This is the most recent illustration of how the legacy of progressive Democrats who have swept into prosecutor offices in major cities over the course of the last decade has been shattered beyond repair. 

Additionally, progressive Democrats have been confronted with challenging reelection campaigns in other cities, with the blame being placed on progressive policies for the notion that cities are less safe. There was a mix of praise and criticism directed against Foxx's leadership from candidates in the Chicago region.
